That is within a normal healthy range. For your interest - healthy blood pressure range is: systole: 90-120 diastole: 60-80 Hypotension (low blood pressure) can cause inadequate perfusion of brain tissue (that is the brain does not receive enough oxygen), which can manifest as fainting, dizziness and confusion. If you experience any of those signs you should go and see your doctor.

They seem to be really on me about it. And I have fainting episodes. I m getting worried. What can happen if my blood pressure is this low? My heart rate is also low, and I eat only once a day. I also suffer from insomnia, so I do not sleep. What can this lead to? I ve been to doctors. And I have to go to the hospital every week. They tell me I should already be dead, but I don t know how serious it is. I guess it is. Is there anything I can do to raise it? I m starting to become rather worried. I haven t felt good in months. Haha, I ve been admitted into the hospital for it. And it s possibly a bit above 70. It was in the seventies though. I m on so much medication it s not funny. But i m looking for anything else I can do help.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
